So here, look at this cool picture I took the other day. My commute to and from the Indian reservation on which I work consists of driving through "the Palouse", the rolling hills of N. Idaho where they grow peas and lentils. It is beautiful. One day last week I decided to take one of the many back roads, just to see what there was to see. Turns out, not much. A few old farm houses and this:
I have no idea what the hell it is; it looked almost like an old train car hovering 30 feet off the ground, but I'm assuming it is some sort of grain storage. Any ideas? Anyway, it was this wild lime-green color covered in rust, and the sky was almost black with clouds. Of course, I've manipulated it a wee bit to exaggerate the contrasts, but it turned out pretty cool, no?
In fact, it reminds me of the photos my friend Rod takes. He finds old farm equipment, cars and tractors and photographs them; the rustier the better. Then he manipulates the colors and has them printed on canvas so that they look like paintings. So, so cool. You can see his art work here; look under "photos on canvas". I love the images of flowers too.
Have a great weekend, ya'll.
